Grand Vieux Liquor Company was established in July 2017 by a group of whisky enthusiasts hoping to infuse their passion and community-first mantra into the spirits industry. After years of highs and lows, alternating moments of ecstasy and bitter defeat, the team at GVLC persevered and finally began production of their flagship HARD SHOT Vodka in 2022. The future looks bright for Grand Vieux and Grandview.
